BareMinerals’ Clear Radiance glow powder

And ANOTHER BE color that managed to escape the initial “get-them-on-the-site” round of posting. This is in so many kits, I'm surprised that I didn't notice its absence from the site sooner. This is a near-neutral, and a very soft shade. I think that deeper skintones would not be flattered by this color since it would add some luster, but would also be a bit dulling - not good. For fair/light/medium skintones, though, this is a really versatile shade: highlighter, overall glow, eyeshadow blending layer, you name it.

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the face color in the pot; top right, the face color patted loosely over primer, to better show the shade and properties; and below, the color applied to the cheeks.

Clear Radiance is the pink-toned sibling to Pure Radiance. Both are essentially very soft neutrals with the barest hint of color. Either will work with skintones that are neutral or do not have strong pink, olive, or golden undertones.
